Lesson 239 The Glory of My Father Is My Own

Part 2:2 WHAT IS SALVATION

Lesson 238

The Glory of My Father is My Own.

  1. Let not the truth about ourselves today be hidden by a false humility.  Let us instead be thankful for the gifts our Father gave us.  Can we see in those with whom He shares His glory any trace of sin and guilt?  And can it be that we are not among them, when He loves His Son forever and with perfect constancy, knowing he is as He created him?
  2. We thank you, Father, for the light that shines forever in us.  And we honor it because You share it with us.  We are one, united in this light and one with You, at peace with all Creation and ourselves.

False humility may find miserable satisfaction in sorrow, guilt, and shame but would only serve to hide the truth from our eyes. For we are Sons of God in whom there is no trace of sin and guilt.   We are as God created us, spirit – without spot or wrinkle.  Symbols of the ego’s separation, our bodies distract and humble us with their constant needs, desires, and appetites.  But can it be that we are not among the Sons of God, when our Holy Spirits call to us from our eternal home? 

 Dear Father in Heaven, that the light that shines inside our mortal bodies be never snuffed out by the ego’s dark shadow.  We cherish the light that You share with us even while we dream ourselves as fearful beasts and monstrous.  Unite our mind as one with You, so we are at peace with Creation and ourselves, no longer separated by false humility and dishonest pride.  In Jesus name.  Amen.

About the Author

Coming up on sixty, my love for God, home and hearth, my husband and family fueled my decision to devote the rest of my life only to pursuits which brought love, joy, peace, and purpose. I am a writer, seeker, student, and teacher with experience professional and otherwise from waitressing to teaching the English language in China, Taiwan, and Singapore. I hold a BA in Psychology from Bloomsburg University, which took nearly 30 years to attain while I squeezed courses in between raising my children, journaling, relationships, work, and an assortment of escapades, some of which I would rather forget! An ongoing passion for reading, writing, adventure, food, and fun, eventually led me to the love of my life, James, whom I met in 1996 and married in 1997. Our life together has been an exciting journey of work and travel, spiritual awakening, and domestic bliss ever since. Although we have experienced the tragic loss of family members and friends through death and estrangement, we have managed to turn our special relationship into a holy one by the grace of God and an acute and growing awareness of “there must be a better way!” In 2006, I published my first novel, Luella’s Calling, and am currently working on my second, Grover Good and the Stone Chateau. From 2013 through 2018, I worked as a Prevention Education Specialist for Transitions, a local domestic violence sexual abuse victim’s service agency. My work there, fueled by a lifelong enthusiasm for teaching, led me to obtain an MS in Education from Scranton University. In 2018, I resigned to accompany James on his work travels while focusing on my calling to study and teach A Course in Miracles. To that end, I dedicate the rest of my days to writing, sharing, and teaching the message of salvation found within the Course pages. Thank you for your interest in this blog.
